Turkey Tortellini Soup

It's Soup Tuesday!
I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving. Now you are thinking you can't even look at another turkey sandwich using your leftover turkey.
Need a quick meal idea for yourself or a group?
Check out this recipe I found on the Butterball.com website.

Turkey Tortellini Soup  using leftover turkey, vegetables and tortellini.


8 ounces uncooked cheese tortellini
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped onion
1 large carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
2 cans (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
1 can (28 ounce) tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano, undrained
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground white or black pepper
2 cups leftover chopped cooked turkey


Prepare tortellini according to instructions on box or package.
Melt butter in large saucepan on medium heat.  Add onion and carrot.  Cook and stir for about 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Stir in broth, undrained tomatoes, basil, sugar, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil on medium high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
Stir in tortellini and turkey.  Cook until heated through.
